For defense - new defensive coach in Samuellson. Little-no emphasis on shot blocking.
Moral - team needs time to adjust. Only thing going against AV, in my opinion, is his lack of a mean streak. This is NY. Fans like grit. Can't have your best player head hunted with no retaliation. Can't be embarrassed by a rookie with no retaliation. Can't lose 9-2 and 6-0 and not have an emotional reaction. This is NY. That won't fly for long.
Its not crazy, imagine paying or wasting time watching these awful games. i dont care if they are the west coast, ability to show some potential is not there, i forgot to mention, Dominic Moore also is really useless dont know why we took him back.
